Start mile 5900.0 end 5927.7 Daily 27.73 Segment 113.4 Trip 425.3
Route: Springhill to Magnolia, AR.
No breakfast at the hotel, so I had a quick McDonald’s breakfast before departure. There were several hills at the start but a good start nonetheless. Most of the route was flat and I was able to make good progress until ~10:40, when an expected major storm arrived. I waited out heavy rain under some shelter in a church yard until 12:50.
I only go 28- miles today, but the saddle sores have gotten the best of me. I planned for arrival at a Best Western hotel in Magnolia, which was apparently sold to private owners. Not quite the quality I had hoped for. I have to return home to catch a flight in a few days; the problem is, I don’t have my itinerary with me and don’t have anything that even suggests my flight date, so I will plan to return at least a day before my first gross estimate. I researched bus station locations but there are none until tomorrow’s city (Camden). No sweat.
Magnolia is a nice little town. I like it here.
